Vintage Photo of the Week...
cropped Lefebvre

This is a photo of Kamela Gleason in 1978 receiving confirmation from the late, great Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre back in the days when the old-rite Confirmation had nearly disappeared from the face of the earth.  The new-rite Confirmation was so appalling that many parents worried it was not even valid.

Imagine, then, what a visit from the French Archbishop meant to us all back in those days!
Kamela is a Remnant subscriber and an old friend, and we're very grateful to her for sharing this touching and meaningful photograph with us. 

(If you have a vintage photo of any important event or person from the old days of the traditional Catholic movement, please send it to us and we'll post/publish it along with a description and credit. This email address is being protected from spambots.

[Comment Guidelines]
The Remnant values the comments and input of our visitors. It’s no secret, however, that trolls exist, and trolls can do a lot of damage to a brand. Therefore, our comments are heavily monitored 24/7 by Remnant moderators around the country.  They have been instructed to remove demeaning, hostile, needlessly combative, racist, Christophobic comments, and streams not related to the storyline. Multiple comments from one person under a story are also discouraged. Capitalized sentences or comments will be removed (Internet shouting).
The Remnant comments sections are not designed for frequent personal blogging, on-going debates or theological or other disputes between commenters. Please understand that we pay our writers to defend The Remnant’s editorial positions. We thus acknowledge no moral obligation whatsoever to allow anyone and everyone to try to undermine our editorial policy and create a general nuisance on our website.  Therefore, Remnant moderators reserve the right to edit or remove comments, and comments do not necessarily represent the views of The Remnant.
